After years of making mostly-instrumental electronic music as Holm., Thatcher May created the Sports Coach alias in late 2014 as an outlet for his vocal-and-guitar-driven songs. Since then, he has been astonishingly prolific, releasing 10 albums of material and embarking on three national tours. Fans of Panda Bear, Ariel Pink, and Parquet Courts will greatly enjoy Sports Coach's music.
Du Vide's gentle, wistful sound harks back to 1990s "slow-core" greats like Codeine, Bedhead, and Duster.
Big Slur is a set of technical limitations: a drum machine, a mic, and a monome running The Party Van. Whatever happens happens.
